data label bug?

I created a conditional chart which shows two different types of columns... one column type shows actual # days to sign a contract, and the other shows contracts that are still pending and # days it's taken so far.  they are set up conditionally so that they only display one type of column per contract

i changed the max y axis value to 30 (with the maximum actual value being 60).  this causes a few of the columns to be cut off.  i've turned off data labels for one of the column types, and i'd like the data labels for the other to be on the inside edge. 

the problem is that the data labels of the columns that are cut off aren't showing.  i find the "hidden" text boxes and manually move them, but the text doesn't show.  i've tried changing the font, size, and color, to no avail.  i can't get them to show up, even if i place them outside of the column.  this only happens with the "inside edge" option for label placement

anyone heard of this

thanks

jill

Jill -

Excel XP or 2003, right? In prior versions the labels would show if the 
point they represented fell outside the plotting rectangle but still 
within the entire chart area. By "fixing" this in XP, Microsoft hosed a 
number of my funky chart types and workarounds.

As a workaround, you could add a Line chart series (add a series, 
convert it only to a line type from Type on the chart menu) that has Y 
values corresponding to where you want the labels, and labels drawn from 
a worksheet range using one of these addins:

   Rob Bovey's Chart Labeler, http://appspro.com
   John Walkenbach's Chart Tools, http://j-walk.com

Both are free, easy to use, and very helpful.

Overwriting data
I have a macro set up to submit data from an entry point on one worksheet into a database on the other.

Conditional format that higlights differing data on two worksheets
I have a workbook that contains a worksheet for a single week of any given month and in the sheet I have an individual's time reported for each day of the week. I have a second workbook that contains an individual's time reported by each day for the entire month. I would like to compare the two to determine if there is a mismatch and highlight those cells. The logic goes something like this: (1) I need to match person A in column C of workbook1 to the same name in column C in workbook2. (2) I then need to match the date of the month on workbook 1 & 2 for person A in step #1. (3)...

Notation Bugs
Did anybody notice that Excel handles math notations (symbols) in an incorrect way? Try this: write -2 in cell A1. Write =1-A1^2 in a different cell. Write =-A1^2+1 in another cell. The two expressions are equivalent, shouldn't they? Well, the former gives -3, the latter gives 5. The formulas are not equivalent Try =-(A1^2) + 1 for second formula.

Skip blank or N/A in data analysis
Hi, I try to do data analysis (such as regression) to two data columns X ~ Y. Under some condition, some of the Y values are blank or (#N/A). When I do X-Y chart, those points are ignored. However, when I select the same columns to do regress or any other data analysis, I got the error saying "Input range containing non-numeric data". I don't want to put any number like 0 for those to distort my result. I just want to ignore or skip those N/A data. Is there a way I can do it without removing those data? Because the N/A location depends on a variable (a condition). I ...

Printing single labels directly from CRM 4.0
Hi! We are currently moving from CRM 3.0 to CRM 4.0 while at the same time introducing many new users to the system. One feature that we would like to have, partly to satisfy new users, would be to print individual account's or contact's addresses to a labelwriter. Basically, the idea would be that from any view you could select 1-n accounts or contacts, then click print label on the toolbar, and then the labels would print from your selected labelprinter. Especially when printing only one or a few labels, this approach would be preferable to printing eg through mailmerge. I'm n...
